Do your homework before you look for that RV or boat!

Before you shop, you should understand the type of RV which fits your needs, and the price range you can afford. It takes research and planning, and should you need financing, getting pre-approved for the right loan.

For many, that trailer, 5th wheel, motor home or boat will be one of the largest purchases you will make. Are you seriously interested in one of these vehicles or water craft? You should do your homework before you shop.

Get pre-approved now for your dream RV, boat or toy!

Get an early start on shopping for the boat, RV, or other toy you’ve been dreaming about. Just call, click or stop by a Mid Oregon location to start your pre-approved RV loan. With your pre-approval in hand, you’ll know exactly how much you can afford, and how much your payment will be, so you can negotiate with confidence. What a great way to get your best deal!

Knowing financing in advance allows you to focus on vehicles in your price range.

What Fits Your Needs?

There are many resources to help you find the right vehicle or water craft. On the internet, you can search manufacturer and dealer’s websites. You can look at industry reviews. You can talk to current RV or boat owners to learn the good, the bad and the ugly. And you can start by asking yourselves some key questions (the following is derived from “The Only Guide You Need to Buy an RV“, by Melissa Popp, TripSavvy, 11/26/17:

  • Why are you buying an RV? There are motorhomes and towables, and do you want a new or used RV.
  • Where do you plan to travel with the RV? First, do you own a towing vehicle, and are you comfortable with driving while towing? Pop up campers, truck campers and small travel trailers are often the best way to ease into the RVing lifestyle.
  • What features do you need? If the RV is brand new you can choose the features or customizations at the dealer, but it might be expensive. Know what is important to you.
  • What features do you want? Because it’s important to narrow down exactly what you need as opposed to what you want before you buy an RV. One of the biggest benefits of owning an RV is that you can customize and add features to it down the line, you might wait to invest in projects for the future.

We hope you enjoy the Sportsmen’s Show & RV/Boat Show this Thursday through Sunday. Let Mid Oregon help you enjoy it more to make your dream become a reality!
